TRANSFORMATIONAL THINKING: A New Look at “Looking” – Professional & Personal Development Opportunity


This Great Lakes Waldorf Institute offering explores Rudolf Steiner’s approach to understanding understanding, how it relates to human freedom and morality, and how it provides a context that helps us change our thinking so that we can become an active participant in the unfolding of reality in new ways.

Open to anyone interested in developing their own transformational thinking!

Weekend Retreat: Participants will be oriented to Rudolf Steiner’s “philosophy of freedom.” In addition to presentations and conversations on the theme, this weekend event will incorporate artistic experiences of metamorphosis through eurythmy and the arts.

The online course will include the study of various texts and supplemental readings, including content from Rudolf Steiner’s seminal work Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path (aka The Philosophy of Freedom). Participants will become familiar with Steiner’s understanding of thinking, receive a basic overview of Goethean phenomenological observation, and develop a working knowledge of the elemental cycle.  They will emerge with the building blocks necessary to implement such practices, and will become aware of how these practices support and bring about change in their private life, social interactions, and professional work.

Monika Sutherland, MM will be the lead instructor with guest teachers contributing from their areas of expertise.
